AOPA provides just what you have been looking for. Join today for access to all AOPA member benefits:
Unlimited access to on-staff reimbursement experts
AOPA’s reimbursement specialists can answer all your questions related to coding, reimbursement and compliance via telephone or email. They can also assist with HIPAA, and navigating the audit and appeals process. Please call (571) 431-0876 with your member ID or identifying information handy to speak with the experts.
Legislative and Regulatory advocacy on your behalf
AOPA staff and lobbying team bring your voice to Washington to fight for equitable treatment for O&P. Since the 2011 “Dear Physician” Letter, AOPA’s number one priority has been challenging RAC and CERT audits by overly aggressive CMS contractors. AOPA will fight against competitive bidding attempts, and any other Medicare proposals that threaten patient care and cause unnecessary burdens on providers.
Member savings on all AOPA Education
AOPA’s authoritative seminars and other educational opportunities enable O&P professionals to learn from the AOPA experts in an interactive setting. AOPA members save significantly on registration fees to the Annual Assembly, the monthly webinars, and the quarterly Coding & Billing Techniques Seminar. More information can be found on our Education page.
As an online reimbursement, coding and policy resource, this site includes a collection of detailed information with links to supporting documentation for the topics most important to AOPA Members. Like a Wikipedia of all things O&P, the Co-OP incorporates a crowdsourcing component, which is vetted by AOPA staff, to garner the vast knowledge and experience of our membership body.
Significant discounts on information-packed O&P products
AOPA experts research, design and produce its authoritative collection of coding and business products to meet the needs of O&P businesses nationwide. Members save significantly on AOPA Bookstore purchases.

Save on credit card processing
AOPA has partnered with Bank of America to bring credit card processing rates as low as 1.9% to AOPA members. Many members are paying more than 2.5% and if you’re handling $500,000 a year in credit card transactions, the 0.6% savings is like getting a 200% return on your membership dues investment. To request an audit of a recent processing statement to identify the savings you would enjoy by switching to Bank of America, call 888/317-5402 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
